Name & Godparent Suggestions for the Twins
IMO I don't think it's that early to start coming up with names and godparents. :flowers:

I'm hoping for one of each.

stellad 08-06-2010 11:35 AM

I'm still in shock that it's twins ... will have to voice my suggestions tomorrow.

ladybelline 08-06-2010 11:38 AM

For girls:

for boys:

And godparents: Princess Marie, Queen Anne-Marie, one of Mary's sisiters.

Lumutqueen 08-06-2010 11:41 AM

Just to re-cap

Christian Valdemar Henri John
Christian has eight godparents. They are Haakon, Crown Prince of Norway, Mette-Marit, Crown Princess of Norway, Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Prince Joachim of Denmark, Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece, Patricia Bailey and two friends of the couple, Jeppe Handwerk and Hamish Campbell.

Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe
Isabella's godparents are The Duchess of Brabant, Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark, Nadine Johnston, Christian Buchwald, Peter Heering and Marie Louise Skeel.

I think we might rule out Henrik, seeing as they have a cousin named that.

Names for boys :


Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg
Princess Tessy of Luxembourg
Princess Astrid of Belgium, or one of her 2 eldest daughters.

:ohmy:It might take a while for the shock to wear off for me! I'm so happy about this - when is the last time a ruling royal family had twins?

Princess Claire of Belgium had twins in 2006, Aymeric & Nicolas.

I am thinking No to Tessy as a Godparent. Do they even know each other?

I would imagine another one of Mary's siblings and either Maxima of the Netherlands or Marie of Denrmark.

Lumutqueen 08-06-2010 12:16 PM

I think we can rule out any royals from Luxembourg/Liechenstein/UK.

Maybe one of the spanish royals, but I didn't think they were that friendly with Mary and Frederik.

Marie of Denmark & Jane Stephens are definete possibilities. WA and Maxima may also be possibilities.

Two or Three royals, and others will be friends.

Will they both share the same godparents do we think?

nicoles94 08-06-2010 12:18 PM

Frederick will probably be in there somewhere
Knud would be awesome, they should bring back Knud.
(Male names are a little limited in the Danish Royal family. Unless you want to go old school)

Jane as a middle name, to honor her sister
Patricia again as a middle name to honor her sister.

We might see Mary's sister Jane or her brother John as godparents. Those are really the only sure bets I can think of right now.

Zonk 08-06-2010 12:18 PM

Not friendly with the Spanish Royals?

Felipe was Frederick the night he met Mary.

Felipe mother Queen Sofia is the sister of King Constatine who is married to Anne Marie sister of Margethe. So they are cousins by marriage or something like that.

Lumutqueen 08-06-2010 12:21 PM

Well this is just my opinion, when you look at pictures taken at Victoria's wedding you see Mary, MM and Maxima together.
I didn't know Frederik was with Felipe when he met Mary, but that is 10 years ago. They do have sailing in common I suppose.
Cousins by marriage isn't a lot.

You can rule out the Infantas though?

Seeing as they've done the traditional with Christian and the fairly untraditional with Isabella.

No one has said if they think it will be one of each or both of the same sex?

Muhler 08-06-2010 12:28 PM


Boy: Either Christian or Frederik, that's almost a certainty.
A Greenlandic or Faroese name.
Peter or the name of another very close friend.

Girl: Ingrid.
Probably Margrethe as well.
A Greenlandic or Farose name.
Caroline perhaps?

wymanda 08-06-2010 12:30 PM

Margarethe Dagmar Thyra Jane
Henrietta Ingrid Sophia Daisy

Johan Marius Frederick Knud
Daniel John Henrik Philip

For godparents - Prince Daniel, Prince Nicholas of Greece, Princess Marie, Sophie Wessex, the future Princess Charlene

Lumutqueen 08-06-2010 12:30 PM

Another Christian? Middle name maybe.
It is Queen Ingrids 100th birthday this year isn't it?

Hopefully two fairly modern names, both Christian and Isabella are modern.

I was like ZOMG 0____o when I heard it, of course in a happy way(:
I hope that it'll be one of each :D



Some of Mary's siblings, Princess Alexandra zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, either CP Willem-Alexander or CP Maxima of the Nederlands, one of the Greek cousins, Princess Marie, Tatiana Blatnik & it would so so incredibly sweet if Prince Nikolai will be the godfather of one of them (although, I don't know how old you have to be to be a godfather/mother).

Ccile 08-06-2010 01:26 PM

I guess princess marie will be one of the godmother!

windsorgirl 08-06-2010 01:46 PM

Let's see, for godparents I suggest Prince Daniel and Princess Marie are shoo-ins, as well as a sibling or two of Mary's. Maybe another Greek cousin? It will be interesting to see whether the twins share godparents. Having up to sixteen godparents (eight for each child) at the altar seems like a bit much -- so perhaps they will do 4 for each or something. It will be exciting to watch it unfold!

I agree that Frederik might be in a boy's name somewhere but definitely not the first name as Christian's son will be named Frederik (yes, far in the future but probably true nonetheless). Caroline or Charlotte for a girl are my preferences. :flowers:

suztav 08-06-2010 01:54 PM

2.) Crown Princess Maxima
3.) Princess Marie
4.) Prince Daniel
5.) Prince Nicholoas
6.) one or two of the Danish friends
7.) Dark horse: Amber Petty
